Halogenated phenols act on all pathogenic micro-organisms similarly and to approximately the same degree - i.e. they are non-specific, their activity is not appreciably reduced by the presence of relatively large amounts of non-living organic matter, their relatively simple chemical constitution means that their use is not liable to encourage the emergence of strains of micro-organisms adapted to resist their action.
